Welcome to Noncredit Counseling!

The mission of the Noncredit Counseling department is to help students enrolled in adult basic education, noncredit English as a Second Language, citizenship, and short-term vocational skills classes to navigate the educational systems of the college from admission until students reach their educational goals

As a result of COVID-19, this semester we will continue to assist students via telephone, email, and/or video-conferencing (Zoom). In addition, our team members will be offering limited on campus appointments. Please call ahead time to set up an in person appointment. We know this is a time of uncertainty and concern for many of you, and we want to reassure them that we are here to support you. 

Our team is committed to continue offering excellent services while also protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community. We thank you and appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we navigate through these challenging times. Please stay healthy!
